Meal Plan 2016 - Week 49

Weekly Meal Plan - Real Food for Real Families

This post may contain affiliate links. 

Welcome back meal planners! December is off to a great start, and we are getting geared up for the holidays around here. Last week, I mentioned that I broke down and bought an Instant Pot during the Black Friday and Cyber Monday frenzy. So far, I've managed to do the Water Test and hard boils some eggs. Not very impressive - right?

I have to confess, I find it a little intimidating. My perfectionism is really preventing me from just "jumping in" and using it. But this week, I picked up a marinated pot roast from Trader Joe's and I'm going to attempt it in the Instant Pot. Wish me luck - I think I'm going to need it.

  1. I feel like I'm the only person on the Internet who hasn't bought an Instant Pot.

    1. You aren't . . .and I may have bought one, but I have yet to actually USE it - LOL! Tonight is my real test!

  2. Ok I love the term YOYO. Stealing!

    1. Feel free - I borrowed it from I'm An Organizing Junkie and her Meal Plan Monday Link Up! LOL

  3. You must tell me how the Instant Pot works out. I've been wanting one but feeling a little nervous about the whole thing.

    1. I hear you - tonight is our first real maiden voyage . . .
